Belfast, Northern Ireland: Rea Carlisle has inherited a house from an uncle she never knew. It doesn't take her long to clear out the dead man's remaining possessions, but one room remains stubbornly locked. When Rea finally forces it open, she discovers inside a chair, a table - and a leather-bound book, its pages filled with locks of hair, fingernails: a catalogue of victims. Horrified, Rea wants to go straight to the police but her family intervenes, fearing that scandal will mar her politician father's public image. Rea turns to the only person she can think of: disgraced police inspector Jack Lennon. He is facing suspension from the force and his new supervisor, DCI Serena Flanagan, is the toughest cop he's ever met. But a gruesome murder brings the dead man's terrifying journal to the top of the Belfast police's priority list.

My last Neville
I thought I would enjoy listening to anything narrated by Gerard Doyle, but this book has convinced me that I was wrong. This is the second Neville book I've "read" and it will be the last as I find his plot lines predictable and the language unremarkable. I adore Irish noir (I realize now how spoiled I am by Adrian McKinty's work) but am off to find other authors whose writing adheres to Elmore Leonard's most important rule, "If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it."

Outstanding all around - story, author, narrator
Stuart Neville is one of the few authors I buy "review unseen" - especially if narrated by the Gerard Doyle. The story pulled me in from the first word to the last. Get this book - you will love it.
